    does anyone else get slight elbow pain when doing excercises like tri extensions and skull crushers. dips and bench dont bother me just iso excercises.

    I do tricep isolation exercises all the time, but don't really get pain in my elbows. I go pretty heavy too. It could be you're not doing the exercise properly, or (like Lucifuge said) you're going too heavy. Put some liniment on your elbows before you lift on days that you're going to do triceps and see if it helps.

    I don't do them because of the strain that the put on my triceps attachment. Why do it if it bothers me?

    i do compound lifts....bench, DBs, incline bench.

    I almost never do direct arm work. There is to much stuff to work on in the gym to do biceps curls and triceps pressdowns.

    Ditto at everything P said.

    If you still want to do them, you can search for alternatives that stress your elbows less. Standing overhead triceps extensions are better than seated ones, for example. Clever use of cables can also spare your elbows a lot.

    My buddy has the same issue. I used to feel it somewhat in my elbows but not anymore. I don't do to much direct arm work though.
